    The Big Box ext. vs. Vista, does Open a file work?

    Here is something i cannot test because i don't have Vista. And Vista has this "security" features. Here my problem: The Big Box extension can open a file and run it then. Does this also work in Vista and with not running as admin? Could somebody with Windows Vista be so kind and check it?

    Works fine. I could open a write protected txt without problems. The only problem would be if you tried writing to a write protected file or if the program you need to execute requires admin privileges.

    Many thanks

    It is more about an exe file. Something like a game launcher. Would've been a bad idea when Vista would block the opening of the exe. That's why i asked

    In fact that depends on the privileges of the file to execute, the privileges of your application and the routine the BigBox extension uses.

    If the games to launch have normal privileges, then you haven't to worry about it.
